Repainting System Removes Rust, Not Metal
“Normally, if you sandblast and wait overnight before priming, you get more rust,” says Deardorff. “I apply a coat of Chlor*Rid, and it reacts with remaining iron oxide (rust) and dissolves it, separating it from the metal. The entire surface turns dark. I can wait and sandblast again in the morning for a virtually paint-free surface.”
Better yet, Deardorff says the second sandblast doesn’t remove sound metal, and the Chlor*Rid works on stains other than rust. He uses the Chlor*Rid as one step in his Classic Blast restoration process. The process also uses a fine, dense mix of aluminum oxide, trace minerals and graded walnut shells for a blast medium.
“I believe I am the only person who can remove rust from 10-gauge metal without affecting the metal,” says Deardorff. “And I can remove a stain off any surface.”
Deardorff has coined the term Lifetime Coating to describe his resurfacing that equals the 5 to 7-step coating process used by the automotive industry.
“Chlor*Rid not only dissolves the rust, but also cuts salt content on the metal to less than 5 ppm,” explains Deardorff. “Any chloride over 10 ppm will produce rust.”
Deardorff recommends mixing Chlor*Rid at 1 part to 200 parts water. He then applies 10 gal. of the solution through his sandblaster.
“The industry doesn’t want paint to last,” says Deardorff. “With my system and Chlor*Rid, you stabilize the substrate, so the resurfacing will last longer.”
